June Food'N'Flix Announcement: Mistress of Spices


I joined a group this year - Food'N'Flix - where we watch movies and head into the kitchen and cook or bake or make something based on a recipe they actually make in it or just something we were driven to make after watching it.

This month was my pick. And I picked Mistress of Spices, starring Aishwarya Rai BachchanDylan McDermott. 

I apologize for the lateness of this announcement. My son turned 10 on June 1st and we have spent the past few days celebrating and spoiling him. So sorry!

I haven't seen the movie in a few years, but I remember it being a visual feast, seasoned with mysticism and a dash of sensuality. I'm looking forward to watching it again. I can practically smell the cumin, peppers, and ginger that will be wafting from my kitchen for my Mistress of Spices dish!

If you're inclined to join the fun - and I really hope you are - watch the movie and get cooking.

Post about it on your blog with a link back to this post and to Food'N'Flix. Use of the logo is optional.

You must post must be current (during month of film). And of course we don't mind if your post is linked to other events...the more the merrier.

Have fun with it!

  1. Yay, I'm so excited to watch this film for the first time. I can't believe that I hadn't even heard of it before you announced it as your pick! I am now the proud owner and look forward to being inspired to head into the kitchen. Thanks so much for hosting this month, Camilla =)!

  2. Such a great idea!!! I may just have to join in on this fun!

  3. Oh my goodness! I love that movie. I just need to order it from Amazon since I watch it too many times. :-)

  4. Great choice! This movie is a favorite of mine and one I own--the book it was based on too. Looking forward to lots of exotic dishes. ;-)

  5. I am waiting on the USPS to deliver from Amazon (used my free points) but they wouldn't deliver without somebody home? ????? Never had that happened! :)

  6. Hi Camilla,
    Just sent you an email with my entry. Thanks again for hosting. ;-)

  7. I ordered one copy...left it until about 10 days ago...opened the case and it was cracked. Ordered another got here a few days ago, so I was kind of pressed for time...I forgot to take pictures!!! Arrrrgh! LOL!
